Once again Mr Sherlock Holmes is free to devote his life to examining those interesting little problems which the complex life of London so plentifully presents'. Evil masterminds beware! Sherlock Holmes is back! Ten years after his supposed death in the swirling torrent of the Reichenbach Falls locked in the arms of his arch enemy Professor Moriarty, Arthur Conan Doyle agreed to pen further adventures featuring his brilliant detective. In the first story, 'The Empty House', Holmes returns to Baker Street and his good friend Watson, explaining how he escaped from his watery grave. In creating this collection of tales, Doyle had lost none of his cunning or panache, providing Holmes with a sparkling set of mysteries to solve and a challenging set of adversaries to defeat. The potent mixture includes murder, abduction, baffling cryptograms and robbery. We are also introduced to the one of the cruellest villains in the Holmes canon, the despicable Charles Augustus Milverton. As before, Watson is the superb narrator and the magic remains unchanged and undimmed.


  • No pictures?

    By Books&Cats
    There were several mysteries where pictures were necessary to the understanding of the mystery (The Dancing Men and others) and all that was there was the word GRAPHIC where the picture should have been. I must say that this is disappointing and I will read a hard copy to fully understand the stories.

    A great book of the continuing adventures of the world's greatest Detective.
  • Always adventureous Watson

    By Mele 113
    I enjoyed the trials and tribulations of Watsons descriptions of Holmes... over and over again. I think Watson was Doyles alter ego as was Holmes… The Return of S.H. did not let me down, very fulfilling and quite entertaing. I could not put it down once I began the journey. Classic indeed
  • Missing graphics

    By Jonathan M.C.
    In one story, the picture of the clue is missing. Stories are well-known and great, but production is basic text.
  • Classic book and Canon

    By old Holmes fan
    Sherlock Holmes' tales have always entranced me, surprised me, and made me love reading. This 'comeback' and continuation of his adventures just makes me want to read more.
